Mazdoor Action Committee
Eight Hours Work, Eight Hours Recreation, Eight Hours Rest
The Mazdoor Action Committee is holding a big protest today against the extention of the working day to 12 hours. The protest will begin at Simla Pehari (Lahore Press Club) at 5 pm. The Mazdoor Action Committee demands that the law pertaining to the extention of the working day to 12 hours be immediately repealed.
The Mazdoor Action Committee has chalked out a weekly program of protests against this reactionary legislation. Next week (12 July) the Mazdoor Action Committee will observe Yum e Siyah (black day) in all industrial areas. The week after that (19th July) the Mazdoor Action Committee will observe a hunger strike. The weekly organ of the Mazdoor Action Committee called “Mazdoor” (Worker) has been coming out regularly. This weeks edition contains an article on the implications of the extention of the working day to 12 hours, an article on the Bhatta Mazdoors, another one on the CMKP Martyrs’ day rally in Hashtnagar, and clippings of all the press coverage we got for our last press conference (last friday). The paper will be available at the rally.
